Windows Are a Key Component in Contemporary Design


The Homes by Architects Tour is known for featuring some of the most forward-looking residential design in the area. Our Silver level sponsors, Marvin Windows & Doors, know all about the latest trends in design as well as product performance, and offer many options to please those who are all about new design.

For cutting-edge architects and homeowners, contemporary design isn’t a trend – it’s a passion. Contemporary design demands large expanses of glass for maximum natural light, clean lines for a minimalist look, and energy efficiency. Marvin Windows and Doors, the leader in providing high-quality products for every window and door need, has once again upped the ante when it comes to present-day design. With the addition of six new offerings to its contemporary line, Marvin has cornered the market on the minimalist look, leveraging warm wood interiors that will bring a fresh, modern look to any home.

Marvin’s new contemporary offerings include:

  • 90-degree corner window
  • Contemporary ultimate swinging French door
  • Pearlescent finishes in bright silver and copper
  • Interior shades
  • OXXO glider
